and yet people use it and even PAY (!) for it..
well basic people who take the first chance, and set default settings everywhere.
i quickly checked their terms years ago and they seem horrible. yet another spy company.
absolutely not recommended to use commercial software for such sensitive information. just get keepass or bitwarden.

Instead, everyone recommends them, because chance of having password vault compromised is infinitely smaller than having your login info compromised on any of the countless webpages you use because they mostly have crap security. And if you re-use passwords you just call for multi-account abuse. Same if you use a particular style to memorize them. Once someone sees it and figures it out, it's not gonna be cool. Pseudorandom generated full ASCII of appropriate length on the other hand... they'd absolutely have to go after your password vault. Which, if secured correctly, protected with that one good password and 2FA, it's very hard to have it breached.
Wait… So the german security firm DISCOVERED trackers which were already revealed in the app’s Privacy menu…

I would never trust an app that wants to know my passwords. NEVER!
I can only imagine how malevolent hackers dream about getting their hands on such an extensive user/pass database hahaha
KeePass AllTheWay, 28 Feb 2021There is a saying: If you can remember your passwords, your passwords are not secure.
You d... moreThat saying is so stupid that I cant even describe it....
Good security is knowledge:
-Never trust third party apps and sites,
-Always check certification of site,
-Always check developers of apps you install,
-Dont use your credit card as toy that you share everywhere,
-Set proper authorization when buying stuff from internet(sms confirmation, limits etc), -Change passwords every year.
-Keep your systems security up to date.
As for passwords... All you got to do is just use... more complex words instead of your pet name -_-
What is the problem to have secure password for less important sites, like GSMArena, that you can easily remember like: some date(not your birthday of course) but written: DecemberElevenTwoThousand11 you have long secure password, with upper and lower cases and you have number in it. And if your password need special symbols or its for more secure site(eg google account) use more advanced words that you personally remember and also prepare two or three examples that you add at the beginning or end of pasword like "#0over%"
And most important.... change your password often and fallow simple rules of safety.
If you set your passwords to eg 12345 You deserve to get your info stolen. And if you set some radom hash password that even KGB or FBI cant remember and you need to use Third party apps to write it down for you... you DESERVE that your data is thrown all over the place by authors of that app.
Im using internet like for over 25 years and I never had such problems but of course you people need to find a way to screw such simple thing as... managing your own memory....
nick235, 01 Mar 2021No, I mean, I always write down my own password on paper if I need to "manage" them.... moreBut password "lingering" on a paper is somehow better? Do you also carry that paper with you when you need to login to something outside of your home? I also can't imagine manually typing in long passwords with bunch of weird characters that need you to constantly jump between alphanumeric and special characters sections of keyboard on a smartphone.

AnonD-985481, 28 Feb 2021Bitwarden has zero knowledge encrypted storage (similar to ProtonMail), meaning only users can... moreNo, I mean, I always write down my own password on paper if I need to "manage" them. any password manager means they have our "Password" (yes I know it's encrypted), but still your "password" lingering around net feels weird.
Lol, and western propaganda keeps hysteria about Russian and Chinese hackers when CIA and MSA backdoors are pre-installed in all US based software.

AnonD-985481, 28 Feb 2021Yeah and you can remember hundreds of super complex passwords without one? Sure...Who has hundreds of accounts? Most people would have maybe up to a couple dozen. Mnemonics and frequent use go hand in hand in remembering long and complex passwords. If you have a good enough memory, you can probably remember all relevant passwords you use. If you don't, you can probably still remember the most important ones (bank, personal email...etc.) and use a password manager for the more frivolous stuff.

Symbian era had less of a problem due to Nokia's own policy. They view privacy more and didn't have tracker in their framework because unlike Google, who need tracking as it one of their main revenue profit model.
And whoever thought and promote a centralized cloud based password manger (regardless of the security claim) and use it to have their password in nice one single place is a dumb ass.

People have also mentioned the existence of offline solutions with encryption methods that are way better than a crap piece of paper.
